In a survey carried out recently by the
leading online classified OLX, the importance of servicing cars regularly was
emphasized. With the festive period approaching, and more people seeing a need
to travel long distances to visit family and friends, the OLX survey comes as an
essential reminder for car owners to take proper care of their vehicles.

Speaking on the survey, OLX Country Manager,
Lola Masha, expressed that the company wants to keep its users’ needs in view,
whilst helping them optimize their car usage. Masha added, “With the huge
volume of vehicles on our platform, we realized that we had to educate our car
users by carrying out this survey. It is our way of ensuring that we remain
connected to what is most important to them, especially at this time where a
lot of people travel for the festivities.”
Findings from the research revealed that 68
percent of the respondents serviced their cars every three months, about 20
percent serviced their cars every six months, two percent serviced their cars
every 12 months, and about 10 percent were not forthcoming on the regularity of
service. The research further revealed that a handful of respondents take their
cars for service every month, based on the mileage of the car.
Automobile expert, and General Manager,
Mandilas Enterprises Limited, Stephen Gladwin advised car owners to service and
maintain their cars regularly for longer lifespan and prevention of breakdown
of their vehicles which is usually a cause of road accidents. Gladwin added
that, “It is best to service your car every 3 months. A long road trip is a
serious test for your car, and it is always best to have it in great condition.
One thing that a car user must know is that, there are no small problems when
it comes to cars, an improperly aligned tyre can cause a lot of trouble, just
like an overheating engine.”

He noted that, “People largely do not service
their cars due to poor budgeting and not servicing your car regularly, can lead
to complicated mechanical problems whilst driving.”
Recently, OLX partnered with Mandilas to
offer eligible users who posted their cars for sale on the site, an opportunity
to screen and evaluate their cars for free. At the end of the screening, the
user will get an evaluation certificate from Mandilas that will state the
current market value of the car as well as the condition of the parts of the
car.  This will benefit both the buyer
who is worried about the worth and condition of the car they want to buy and
the seller who is not sure of the monetary value of the car.
